Blotter: Woman charged with misusing 911

SALISBURY — A woman faces charges of misusing the 911 telephone system after allegedly calling for a non-emergency domestic matter, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Sebrina Bunton Phillips, 50, was charged Saturday after an incident in which she called 911 multiple times and was advised not to call again or face charges.

The Sheriff’s Office said Phillips called about a disturbance involving her daughter and that Phillips appeared to be impaired when she called. Sheriff’s deputies advised her of options if she wanted to pursue the matter.

The deputies left the scene and prepared to pull out of the neighborhood when Phillips called 911 again. She was told that she would be charged if she called 911 again for the same situation because it was not an emergency.

The Sheriff’s Office said that Phillips called 911 before the deputies were out of the neighborhood, and she subsequently was placed under arrest.
